Introduction

This is a list of German classical composers, both real and fictional. The fictional ones are intended to become a reality in a separate timeline or in revised history. However, the names of these composers inserted into this list are largely hypothetical. That is, they may or may not be named as such after history is changed. The names of these composers are highlighted in boldface.

The purpose of the presence of these composers is to make more compositional geniuses out of the people of Germany. European countries, particularly Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, England, and Russia are to be abundant in genius composers since the Renaissance, and America since the Baroque era. These 8 nations are the nucleus of Western classical music and composition, and thus these are the nationalities I choose to focus on.

Notes

  • Ludwig van Beethoven is listed here as dying in 1833 instead of 1827 (the latter is the case with the current timeline or version of history). This is a deliberate move; having Beethoven live 6 more years serves to enhance Beethoven's creativity to move further into Romanticism in music, and to make a more profound mark on the world with another cornucopia of Beethoven works (including a 10th symphony).
    • Not only is this moderately expanded Beethoven lifetime intended for a greater impact on Western music, but a death year of 1833 would coincide with the birth year of another great German composer, Johannes Brahms, who is also listed here.
